Pruning, Felling and dead trees

We only prune trees if our inspections show that there is a risk of harm from tree failure. If a tree has direct contact with property or is blocking access.

We value all our trees and only ever fell them as a last resort and when there is no other way to safely keep them. We try to keep dead trees, or dead wood on the ground in areas where this does not create a hazard to people or property. Dead wood is a very important resource for wildlife.
